G & P COHN
specialising in Antique Chandeliers, Sales, Repairs, Restoration & Cleaning since 1954
At G & P Cohn we will relish the opportunity to transform a neglected and unloved Chandelier back to its former glory.We have been repairing and restoring Chandeliers since 1954 and our experience has given us the chance to work on a huge variety of Chandeliers, Candelabra, Wall Lights and Lanterns, whether that be repairing a broken glass arm, replacing missing Georgian drops to reshaping brass stem pieces, rest assured that we have the experience to bring your Chandelier back to its original state.
Depending on the level of restoration needed we can either transport your item from your residence to our workshop to repair or we can perform on-site fixes. If an on-site restoration is not possible then we will dismantle, pack and carefully transport the Chandelier to our workshop, repair, deliver and rehang in your residence.
We have a huge amount of antique glass stock and can replace any missing or damaged items as close to the original as possible. However, if we have no suitable replacement then it is sometimes possible to remake the item in its original form and this is something we can arrange for you. We have been restoring Chandeliers for over 70 years and we have a vast amount of experience in offering different solutions if a direct replacement is not possible.
As part of the restoration process we can fully repin the Chandelier and we pride ourselves in providing old-style pinning. This means that the glass hangs in the way it was intended. It is a more labour-intensive process but the results are well worth the effort! It also means that cleaning the Chandelier becomes more managable due to the increased stability of the strings and swags and thus the buttons and drops are less likely to break and fall apart.
We can also re-wire your exisiting Chandelier. Don't let a beautiful antique light fitting sit in a box because it hasn't been electrified. Visit our electrification service page for more information. After sitting in a box for so many years it's bound to have accumulated a lot of dust, so let us give your Chandelier a total make-over with a good clean that will restore its sparkle and give panache to any room it is hung in. Please see our cleaning service that we also offer.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us so we can advise on the correct treatment for your chandelier.
